nick Clegg, the president of global affairs at Meta Platforms Inc., has become the latest top executive from the social media giant to relocate to London.
Clegg will split his time between California and London, a travel base to represent Metta’s interests in government relations and policy, a spokesman said.
The head of Meta’s Instagram business, Adam Mosseri, will also relocate to London, which serves as the company’s largest engineering base outside the U.S. Alex Schultz, Meta’s head of marketing and analytics, has also moved to the British capital, according to his LinkedIn profile.
The UK is keen to attract tech talent and Meta’s location in King’s Cross was opened by the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall in 2022. The London offices house more than 4,000 employees, including a team dedicated to Instagram.

The moves came first reported from the Financial Times.
Once serving as Liberal Democrat leader and deputy prime minister, Clegg joined Facebook in 2018 as vice president of global affairs and communications. He moved with his family to California after taking office.
Meta previously said employees leaving Silicon Valley could face pay cuts, but a spokesman would not confirm whether Clegg’s salary would be reduced because of the move.
Along with other Meta executives, Clegg’s move represents a shift to remote leadership. In June, the company announced it would allow all full-time employees to apply to work remotely if possible. Chief Information Security Officer Guy Rosen is now based in Israel, according to a Financial Times report. CEO Mark Zuckerberg spends much of his time at his home in Hawaii.
